In over ten years running his event photography business, Pat has completed a wide variety of projects in corporate events, corporate and commercial photography, public relations photography and photo entertainment. He is involved with various community arts projects and is an active member of Brisbane Photography.
It all started in dark nightclubs capturing patrons enjoying the night dancing away to the tracks of international DJs visiting Brisbane. The thumping of the bass, the mirror balls and colourful lasers. Once the hangover cleared, Pat then worked full time as a real estate photographer for a couple of years which gave him an eye for detail when capturing rooms. Now the rooms he captures are a lot bigger and have over 1000 table settings and chairs ready to be opened up to guests.
After a year, clients were asking Pat to travel nationally and internationally and a demand for a professional event photography service grew – Event Photos Australia was born. A team of specially selected event photographers from around Australia had been selected and trained to be part of the team.
Only in the past year did the business grow even more with clients looking for new and innovative products. A new business, Sircle Studios was launched. A fun, engaging, photo entertainment service which offers green screen photography, onsite printing and other services to the events and PR industry.
Pat is the “go to guy” when it comes to event photography and has also recently launched an Event Photography Blog for the events industry.
